Prince Charming



Well well well, what do we have here? The little frog below has magically turned into this little heart-breaker. (Magically, of course, if you mean days of non stop dedicated work.) Maybe not a heart-breaker-- but a rich and charming prince. (Gotta keep the fantasy as unrealistic as possible, you know what I mean? Give the people out there some hope) ;)

I also threw in the process of how I go about doing my work.
Sketch done in Adobe Photoshop, and the renderings were done in Adobe Illustrator.

So yep...the latest addition to the whole fairy-tale theme. Care to guess what comes next? ;)
P.s, seriously people-- suggestions would be appreciated!

Touch me one more time, and I'll kill your dog. :)

Fairygod mother? Hmm-- okay- i'll see what i can do about that! ;)

Francisco Martins said...

TJ Lubrano said...

Awesome prince Abz! haha he sure does have this 'Hiiii...it's me, I'm here to save you!' smile!!

Hmm suggestions huh? I thought Francisco already named a bunch a few posts back? What do you have on your list so far?

You have the prince, sword, frog, clock...so next to fairy godmother...where's the princess? Maybe an evil stepmother? Maybe a king? Elves? Fairies? talking trees?

Ehm..I could add more hehe. I shall stop!

Francisco Martins said...

I'm with TJ...princess and Talking trees sounds very Good! :D

Julissa said...

Dark hair and green eyed prince...i like ;)

Gavin Goo said...

Another nice one. I loved looking at the process. Personally I have yet to do sketches in Photoshop though. :)

Shirley said...

I just laughed so hard at your comment to Francisco about killing his dog. Oh my goodness. You are a riot.

You have to do a princes. C'mon!

Awesome job on the prince! I'm impressed AND I love the process work!

A belated happy birthday sir... hope you had a grand day! Its great to see your process on this one too. Lovely polished finished piece. What's next...? I'd like to see something less beautiful... troll, ogre, dragon, Rumplestiltskin... maybe seven dwarves... :)

What's the personality behind the prince? He looks slightly devious...like if Prince Charming were that greasy leech in a bar tryng to score by doing Antonio Bandaras impersonations...except that he's really a mailman from Jersey who wears a girdle and hits the electric beach!

It would be funny to see him trying to pick up the princess this way!

lincoln said...

Thanks! Metheny has very unique mannerisms when he performs. I recommend youtubing the song "As it Is" find the live one and and watch it through to the end...!

lincoln said...

I'll definitely check it out when I get home— they've got the Youtube blocks on here at work...

IN the measntime if you want to spin some tunes here's my jazz trio!

Music in general really effects my mood and I often choose music that best fits the subject matter I'm working with..

Jason Dove said...

Abz, nice detail on the prince. The close up was impressive along with the process sheet.

Abz said...

Thanks for all the comments! I'll be posting an update shortly!

ginger bred said...

Great work as always!! I think a fairy godmother is a must! :) ok... I'll confess my age...28! :)

Jmontiel said...

Great stuff Abz!!!

cmykinky said...

omg he creeps me the eff out! he looks like a rapist..not so charming, but beautiful illustration nonetheless!

Mighty Kwan said...

LOL! I agree with some of the comments that if this Prince walked up to me in a club, I'd quickly walk the other way. He is kinda creepy looking. Most of it I think is in his eyebrows. He has angry eyebrows with a smile and that just makes him look evil. But I love your style! I'm enjoying going through your posts!!

Abz said...

Yea, he does look a little sneeky/angry... ! Not your average everyday prince... lets pretend that was intentional! ;)
